TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have had the pleasure of teaching in Alabama for the past 4 years. I began my teaching career at Chelsea Intermediate as a Gifted Resource Teacher. The opportunity confirmed that I wanted to pursue my Master's Degree in Gifted Education. I then worked one year as an Interventionist at Meadow View Elementary School before becoming the Gifted Resource Teacher. I absolutely love my job and look forward to continuing my passion!
